Originally from North Uist in the Western Isles, Morag Macdonald graduated with a degree in Drawing and Painting from Edinburgh College of Art in 2008.
Since then, while developing her own projects, she has tutored a range of English and Gaelic visual art programs for organisations including the Fruitmarket Gallery, City Arts Centre and the Children’s Parliament.
Morag’s work is heavily reliant on repetitive mark making, to an almost obsessive level. The surrounding environment, whether rural island or busy city, feeds continuously into pen and paper compositions. Her work is a constant collecting of visual observation; a collaboration of memory and meditative drawing woven together through exploration of shape and line.
